Policy briefs are summaries of scientific knowledge, usually connected to a current managemental development or political proceeding, that aim to enhance engagement in important Baltic Sea issues.
Tvärminne Zoological Station has a strategic cooperation with the Baltic Sea Centre at Stockholm University and policy briefs about the current research are published in cooperation.
Policy briefs and fact sheets contain scientifically based information to policy makers. Don't hesitate to contact us if you would like a printed copy of any of the publications!
The coastal zones are among the most effective areas on Earth at sequestering carbon from the atmosphere. Treated right, these ecosystems are important corner-stones in climate change mitigation, but if degraded, they instead release large amounts of greenhouse gases, re-enforcing global warming. Urgent action is needed to preserve and restore the Baltic Sea coasts and use these systems to work in favor of the climate – not against it.
